(Motorsport-Total.com) – Daniil Kwjat was only a few days ago pleased about his contract extension with Toro Rosso, he arrived in Brazil with special support , The Russian has his girlfriend Kelly Piquet, daughter of Formula 1 legend Nelson Piquet, together with little daughter Penelope for the first time.
“So much has not changed at all,” he is addressed to his life as a neo-daddy. “Of course it's a bit more stressful when I'm at home, but at the racetrack I'm focusing on my job, it's always been my philosophy, racetrack is racetrack and privacy is private life.”
Nevertheless, motorsport always plays a role in this family constellation. Therefore, the Sizable Prix of Brazil is a special race for Kwjat. My coach comes from Australia, then Monaco, Russia, Italy, Japan, and now here as well! “
Everywhere he feels home already he jokes. “But yes, that's a special race for me.” Kwjat says this not only because he is in love with Piquet, but also because he appreciates the racetrack. “You can not really see that in the TV picture, these gradients, which is very impressive.”
It's a lot of fun to drive on the Autodromo Jose Carlos Tempo. “This is a true time-honored track, very fast and demanding in driving.” However, he does not want to call the course a favorite track: “The older I get, the sooner does this vocabulary disappear from my vocabulary.”
Of course he hopes to do well with Toro Rosso on Sunday. “Then it's my number 1 on the list!”
